Momentum: 18th Tamworth Fibre Textile Biennial at Tweed River Art Gallery

Momentum: 18th Tamworth Fibre Textile Biennial is a touring exhibition that started at Tamworth Regional Gallery last year (see this post and this post). It's opening on Friday 27 March at Tweed River Art Gallery. If you're in the area (and I must confess to actually having no idea where it is! I'm thinking up north...), pop along and have a look.

The Tamworth Biennial is a prestigious event in the Australian
art calendar. Momentum: 18th Tamworth Fibre Textile Biennial
is curated by Valerie Kirk, Head of Textiles, ANU Canberra,
and reflects the development of textiles and the ever increasing
rate of change in this field.

Valerie Kirk says, “The exhibition will present the vibrancy of
contemporary Australian textiles, exploring the forces that drive
our most innovative and accomplished practitioners. Momentum
identifies the artists on the move, embracing the future with
works that surprise and inspire.”

Thursday 26 March - Sunday 10 May
The accessibility of the language of textiles and its relevance
to contemporary life demonstrates why artists have elected
to work in this medium. This exhibition of work by 25 artists
from across Australia will provide audiences with a focus on
the finest and most exploratory aspects of contemporary
fibre textile practice.
